Based on the open source Kogito project, the new capabilities enable individual business decisions to be created and deployed as containerized microservices that are managed by Kubernetes alongside other containers in the application environment, reducing redundancy and the footprint of traditional decision management systems when deploying in cloud-native environments like Red Hat OpenShift.
The new decision management runtimes build on existing capabilities that incorporate decision modeling tools into development environments like Visual Studio Code (VSCode), allowing developers to use business rules and modeling languages like decision model and notation (DMN) as part of a development project.
Developers also have access to additional features that enable them to set business rules and more effectively create decision microservices on Quarkus, including access to low-level Drools Rule Language (DRL); generators and DRL rules; and add-ons and assets for decision streaming of CloudEvents using Apache Kafka.
Red Hat Process Automation is now integrated with Red Hat AMQ and Apache Kafka, a distributed data streaming platform that can publish, subscribe to, store, and process streams of records in real time.
Red Hat Process Automation now includes OptaPlanner 8, a lightweight, embeddable planning engine that enables Java programmers to solve optimization problems efficiently.
The latest release of Red Hat Process Automation is available now.
